And that's before you even consider that Peak Ivanovic would be hitting more shots out than Peak Maria would.
Yup. Plus Maria's best shot is her backhand crosscourt, which would drive Ivanovic nuts. Ivanovic is actually a pretty good junkballer, but Maria would just smother her from the baseline.

I actually still think this match would be close, but still NID.

If we're talking about their peaks, we wouldn't see junkballing or long rallies at all IMO (except for clay), they would both try to dictate the points after a big serve or after taking the ball early on return (mostly after second serves), whoever serves better - wins. And it should be Maria, her first serve was slightly better and second serve was significantly faster (if she doesn't make tons of dfs). Defense or junkballing wouldn't ba a huge factor at all (it would be a factor against the best counterpunchers in the world, but those two can't hurt each other with junkballing and defending if they're at their peaks)

It's incorrect to say that she hasn't peaked yet, but she never actually peaked because when she was on her best there was some room for improving, but instead of that she got worse. The same could be said for Maria because she got injured when she was at her best. And the same could be said for 99% of players because there are very few players who maximized their potential.

Peak Pierce beats everyone. Anything else is irrelevant.

Re: Peak Ivanovic vs. Peak Sharapova

The only surface this is an interesting topic is clay, so the title should be changed to on clay, as that is the only surface worth debating. On any other surface it is Maria in straight sets every single time, with the best Ana managing being the odd 7-5 or 7-6 set, and is pure trolling to even bring up as a serious attempt of a topic.

I actually agree with this, my point is clay in the only surface you could even argue between the two short of being insane. Outside of being one of the better clay courters of a super weak clay era, Ana was NEVER an elite contender even at her peak . Talk about Ana possibly winning Wimbledon or the U.S Open at her 06-08 peak and everyone laughs outloud.
